MARITIME REPORTER/ Engineering News recently announced it has purchased new and larger world headquarters offices in New York City.
The new location will house the executive, editorial and advertising staff responsible for worldwide publishing operations in the commercial marine and naval sectors.
The publishers reported the acquisition was necessitated by a steady growth in publishing activity which resulted in an increase in staff over the past 18 months. This growth pattern included the introduction of two new major publications. The first edition of the annual Marine Equipment Catalog was published in April 1984. Because of the immediate success of this edition, the Marine Equipment Catalog will be an annual publication.
The second edition will be p u b l i s h e d this month throughout the entire industry.
In the fall of 1984, MARITIME REPORTER also introduced the Navy Contract Information Service, which consists of an original Navy Data Base plus ongoing reports to subscribers of computerized Navy contract data updates supplied twice monthly for inclusion in the original data base.
In addition to New York headquarters and Houston, Texas locations, MARITIME REPORTER/ Engineering News magazine maintains editorial and advertising offices worldwide. Represent a t i v e s of MARITIME REPORTER/ Engineering News are located in Belgium, England, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Japan, Korea and Scandinavia.
MARITIME REPORTER/ Engineering News reports it is the most successful marine industry publication in the world, based on the fact that it is requested by a larger number of marine industry readers than any other marine publication in the world, and annually carries a larger number of advertising pages than any other marine publication in the world.
The new address for MARITIME REPORTER/Engineering News is 118 East 25th Street, New York, NY 10010. The new telephone number is (212) 477- 6700. The I T T telex number remains the same (424768 MARINTI).
